150 cases produced
An exceptional but low-yielding vintage, the 2015 Barbera leaves you wishing that there were more than the 150 cases made of this scrumptious wine to go around. Exhibiting the classic dark red and blue colors Barbera is known for, the aromas and flavors are equally appealing. Violets, dried lavender and incense smells fill the glass leading to a medium bodied and juicy mouth feel upon tasting. Very light and elegant tannins grace the mid-palate paired with baking spice, sumac, sage, black cherries, and ending with a pleasant, well-integrated finish. A medium to full body encapsulates this wine on the palate, delivering everything you could want out of a California Barbera. Certainly a delight of a wine, this Barbera is one to get your hands on. Always a fantastic food companion, try this with a Porcini Mushroom Stew or a crunchy blue cheese like Stilton. Drink now through 2027. Varietal Composition: 100% Barbera.
